With Americans crying out day and night over gun control, celebrities are still busy buying their kids guns?! T.I’s step-daughter Zonnique Pullins, was arrested and charged for carrying a weapon (gun) through security at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Friday.
According to CBS News, police said Zonnique attempted to go through security lane 10 at the airport when an x-ray machine picked up on something in her purse. That item was later confirmed to be a 380 Ruger pistol complete with a clip and five rounds. Pullins said she had a weapons permit but, when police could not locate it, she was placed under arrest. Pullins was taken to Clayton County Jail and her weapon was taken by the City of Atlanta.
Zonnique isn’t T.I’s biological daughter. She’s his wife’s first child from a former relationship she had before she met and married the rapper.
A cousin to the 20-year-old aspiring singer, has come out to reveal to the public exactly what led to her arrest at the airport. Read what she posted on her Instagram below…
“My boo got the cutest mugshot in the game,” she writes for a caption of the official photo. “Let me just clear a couple things up for you guys . Zonnique did get caught with her registered weapon but like most of us she just forgot it was in her really big purse. We were taught in my family that people are crazy out here and carrying a small gun to protect yourself is what’s needed . With the late shootings and death of a pop star all in Orlando just this week , I think it’s very appropriate that she carries a gun just not to the airport maybe lol. But my girl is home and good so please don’t start with the ignorant rumors , she was home and handled before you even heard about it. Zonnique has great parents that made sure she was okay from the moment she was caught. Not all celebrities keep security on them 24/7 they have to protect themselves just like regular people and we all have learned even security can’t always protect you . Her mugshot is still cute as hell lol”
